Coming along


It's coming along, slowly but surely. Hope you all don't get tired of seeing room pictures..we should have new Claire pictures in a couple of weeks...til then....
So not the best side of me, but I wanted to show proof that I really am working on the room too!!

<----wood does come in purple, right?







<----this turned out so well, but it's not showing up well in the picture. We(I) still have a lot of detail painting to do though.


<-----Isn't she purty?





<----the latest addition

And last, but not least. Jon's Mom(the MIL-seriously she likes being called the MIL)...has started the shopping spree. I hear she did some major Grandma shopping. On Mommy's day we got our first car seat...yay!!! It's not out of the box yet, b/c our cars are not deserving of such greatness(they're filthy), but soon we'll be sporting the car seat! I'm sure it will make the chicks swoon when Jon rolls with the new car seat!! Thanks so much!!

Wow! How WAY cool! It jazzes me to see y'all really getting into the groove of preparing for the new arrival!
We call our girl's room "The Room of Whimsy" as there is a theme throughout it which encourages exercising the imagination - a kind of 'down to earth fantasy' - much like your design - LOVE IT!!!!!!
Blessings to you and your growing family,
Don

BTW - Take a look at Joanna Mei's Room if you like ........
